Brunton Bino Packstrap

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WY Written on January 20, 2012
Thsi is a nice packstrap, but the QR buckles are different than the Brunton Bino strap. If they would use the same buckles the binos could be switched from strap to packstrap in seconds.
Pros: Holds bino securely and in good position
Cons: Quick Release buckles are different than bino strap, should be the same so the strap and packstrap cna be interchanged. they use the same type of buckle, but different enough to prevent interchange....
Would recommend: Yes

A harness is better than a neckstrap. Wearing a neckstrap allows the binocs to sway and bounce. The harnes keeps them close to your chest when walking, crouching, bending, etc. I have tried several harnesses and the rest do not have stiff enough elastic, allowing full size binos to still move around a lot. These bruntons have stiffer elastic and work much better. The have a great quick disconnect that is sturdy.
Pros: Stiffer elastic than most
Cons: Requires two-handed viewing...

Is it better than a neckstrap?

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on July 4, 2010
I honestly don't know how often I'll use this. It's a pair of adjustable elastic straps you put your arms through, with a connector in the middle of your back. The binocular strap is replaced by a pair of short straps that have quick disconnects to their mating halves on the elastic straps. This holds the binoculars against your mid chest, and the straps stretch when you raise the binoculars to your eyes. This means there's always some strap tension when looking through the binos, as well as when carrying them. I find the elastic under my armpits is noticeable and could chafe, especislly on hot days when everything gets sweat-soaked. On the other hand, if you need to do some climbing while wearing the binos, this rig will prevent them from swinging around and smacking something hard like happens with strap carry. It definitely has uses, but I think a strap's usually more convenient.
Pros: Takes weight off neck, holds binoculars against body.
Cons: Can chafe armpits, confining in hot weather...
Would recommend: Yes
